This beautiful limited edition letterpress print celebrates the poetic artistry and talent of the celebrated musician Nick Drake.
From our 'Poets Collection' it takes as its inspiration the lyrics of Nick's magnificent debut album 'Five Leaves Left' and is set in the classic Perpetua font and printed in a deep green ink echoing the colours of the original album sleeve, to create an elegant and sophisticated typographic artwork.
Though he only made three albums in his short lifetime that received liitle critical acclaim on their release, there is a lyricism and beauty that flows through Drake's songs that place him not just as a great songsmith, but as one of the great poets of his age.
Printed on 100% recycled pure white 270gsm board in a limited edition of 200.
The print is made one of the last remaining vintage Heidelberg Letterpresses, in Rye, East Sussex. The rich colour of the inks and the deep impression of the type into the paper are unique characteristics of this traditional process.
A3 size (42 x 29.7cm).
The print will fit any standard A3 size frame. Please note, the frame shown in the photograph is for display purposes only and is not included.
